What kind of cover do you recommend?
Payment protection insurance or PPI is a product which covers your outstanding debt, which is normally triggered when you're financial circumstances change and you have little or no income to pay your debt. After a certain period of time without earning, the PPI normally comes in to play and meets your monthly debt commitments for a certain length of time until you find your feet again.
